    Fire on dive boat Conception in CA

    i was on a LOB several weeks ago. There was a designated night watch on our trip. He was - the 3-4 times I saw him late at night — always on the dive deck doing various things, moving around or chatting with someone. He went to bed abound 8 am, I understood (I was out diving so can’t...

    Fire on dive boat Conception in CA

    I submit that bullet two contains speculation on two issues that may be material and about which we do not yet have sufficient evidence to draw such conclusion: (1) We do NOT know how quickly the fire burned from its inception. We have information only on how quickly it burned from moment of...

    Thank you! !! Very helpful! I'm also very interested in what firefighting experts have to say about the contentions made in the documentary about the efficacy (or ... lack thereof) of these flame retardants.

    Most news reports after first few hours (except those republishing the initial reports) said SOME were in their underwear. (E.g., here, here, and here and many more)

    Question for the firefighters and related experts. Any thoughts on the accuracy of claims made in the "Toxic Hot Seat" documentary (which questioned both the efficacy of the retardants themselves and the relative benefits/risks, given their high toxicity).

    Fire on dive boat Conception in CA

    I think this report has a bit of "new" information. Investigators share crew's 'harrowing story' of boat fire, rescue efforts * * * "[NTSB Investigator Jennifer Homendy] said one crew member reported waking up to a noise and leaving his bunk and seeing flames from the galley. Homendy noted...

    Any advice on needed/not needed accessories?

    I've just completed my 54th dive so am still a newbie all things considered. With that disclaimer, I agree with what others have said that likely you don't NEED to buy anything else. To the extent that you want to, then I think the priority would be - wet suit - dive watch - safety sausage -...

    Divemaster liability

    Wow. I strongly agree with DivemasterDennis. And respectfully disagree with RhoneMan. (I've only been practicing law for 18 years, so compared to DivemasterDennis, I'm a newbie :D.) I don't understand how one could suddenly become a very attractive target for litigants merely by having...

    Divemaster liability

    You are correct that this is a case involving a "scuba situation." However, just for clarification .... the referenced case is Huverserian v. Catalina Scuba Luv, Inc., 184 Cal.App.4th 1462, 110 Cal.Rptr.3d 112 (Cal. Ct. App. 2010). The issue in Huverserian was simply whether a release signed...
